Costs down, climate protection up!
Our thoughts on the situation in Germany:
1. Greater supply reduces prices
According to the principle of supply and demand, our electricity is costly also because it is in short supply following the shutdown of many coal-fired and nuclear power plants. Keeping energy artificially cheap through subsidies only postpones costs. It would be more effective to increase supply. If we keep our nuclear power plants running, the market can relax and prices will fall. By the way, our depreciated nuclear power plants produce by far the cheapest electricity on the market.
Nuclear power reduces energy prices!
2. Nuclear power protects our industry
Our companies depend on cheap energy. If companies can no longer pay for gas or electricity, they have to leave or give up. An economic downturn and high unemployment are the consequences. This could break the cohesion of our society. With our six nuclear power plants – those that are running and those that could come back online more or less quickly – we are effectively containing this threat immediately. In the medium term, new nuclear power plants can secure our prosperity and actually decarbonize the economy.
Energy is prosperity!
3. Coal is a problem
Hard coal and now also lignite have to save us through the winter. But coal pollutes the air, causes cancer and heart-lung diseases, and it damages the climate. In addition, coal has to be imported at high cost from countries that actually need the coal themselves.
Nuclear power is air and climate friendly!
4. Solar and wind need a backup
Solar and wind need a reliable partner for times when the sun is not shining and the wind is not blowing (backup power plants). Our energy transition was designed with confidence that cheap gas would always be available as a backup. The blowing up of the Nord Stream pipelines has removed the basis for this strategy. Suddenly, gas is missing everywhere: in industry, for heating, and for electricity production. We need a new backup that makes us independent. We need nuclear power.
Nuclear power weakens Putin!
